Healthy Chinese Soup

1. Chinese Noodle Soup

I’m not sure how this soup got its name, but I have to admit that I like the sound of it.

The soup has a lovely fresh flavor, and there’s an abundance of veggies in the mix.

The noodles are tender and flavorful, and they provide such a nice contrast to all that goodness.

The egg drop soup is one of the best Chinese dishes ever.

There’s also an array of vegetables that add color and texture to this hearty dish.

As for the chicken itself?
